The Corner House with a wonderful view of Kersey church, is an iconic Grade II listed home on the market with Chapman Stickels a guide price of £875,000.
Dating from the 15th Century, the front section forms the original part of the house which comprises the principal reception rooms.
To the east, a twin aspect sitting room gives delightful views over the garden and the pretty street scene to the north, likewise the dining hall (with cellar - having light, carpeted, power and TV point). Both rooms have Tudor brick arched fireplaces which are attractive focal points.
The remaining principal reception room, a study, is to the west, giving further scenic views over the adjacent ‘Ancient Houses’.
To the rear, a range of later single storey additions comprise the kitchen and breakfast room with fitted pine units and work surfaces on two walls, with an oil-fired AGA, boiler and pantry.
Adjacent to the kitchen (east) is the garden room with double doors onto the patio. Accessed via a glazed vestibule to the east, the remaining ground floor space comprises a side hall, utility room and shower room.
The first floor mostly forms the original front part of the house which mirrors the scenic views of the ground floor – particularly the main bedroom - which has an unusual ‘half barrel’ fireplace.
The front corridor leads to a family bathroom and three further bedrooms, where the end two western single bedrooms are formed by a central modern stud wall which could be easily removed, and in doing so, would reinstate one large double room.
Outside, the wonderful part-walled gardens are a special feature which are located immediately to the east of the house and extend to the south, forming a lower section.
The gardens chiefly consist of a raised shingle terrace leading onto areas of lawn which meander through well- tended flower and shrub borders with areas of soft fruits and small apple trees.
Accessed via the The Street, a paved parking area provides further off-road parking through timber gates.
Of particular note is the detached outbuilding / garage being a former Blacksmith’s workshop, which displays attractive brick nogging on its southern wall.
This building has power connected and a lean-to log store. In all, the property covers some 0.26 acres.
